Posted on 10/29/2012 4:37:29 AM PDT by Zakeet
Supporters of Barack Obama may be breathing a little easier this morning as Public Policy Polling show the president with a 51-47 advantage over Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The new numbers come a day after Ohio news organizations showed a dead heat at 49-49 according to their data. What the previous poll did not show was the result of the third, and final, debate between the two men who are battling for residency for four years in the White House. Last week, PPP showed Obama leading only 49-48.
PPP surveyed 718 likely voters throughout the Buckeye State. The margin of error is 3.7% and the data was collected via automated phone calls from October 26th-28th.

I'm on a roll ... according to this new outlier push poll conducted by a bunch of Libtards!
PPP the most discredited Dem push po operation strikes again.
Pure lies and propaganda !
This is satire, right?
Exclusive: PPP caught doing advocacy polling on race
Oh goody, a new pee pee poll to make the swamped rats feel better while they wait for the landslide that will crush them Nov 6th.
Browne is the same color as his Agenda, but Unionista's and inner-city tribal parasites will probably win out on that Senate Election, I'm afraid.
What are internals? I’m guess its D+5 or 6+ oversampled.
I’d need to know the breakdown before one can say for sure Bamster has got OH locked up.
Most everyone realizes that the Punk POTUS is going to lose the popular vote. What worries me is battle ground state shenanigans where the dims ride voter fraud into a EV victory.
Here is how they phrase their questions....
"Do you support the puppy loving, generous, osama bin ladin slayer or the rich guy who pisses on 47% of the population."
I know that is stretching it, but PPP has also been trained to use proper voice inflection to sway poll particpants.
As far as I am concerned, I am only watching Ras. The rest have hidden agendas.
That means Romney is up at least 6
In 8 days, the truth will be known and the liars exposed.
This poll should be thrown in the trashbasket. The only way Obama has a 4 point lead in OH if you postulate an unrealistic Democratic voting advantage like this poll does!
That’s not going to happen in the real world and Sherrod Brown can’t be doing better than Obama. No way is that true!
Its a worthless push poll.
On Sat. I was at a car dealership and the couple working with a sales person right next to me, had been to the Romney rally the day before.
THEY were stoked and couldn't have been more vocal and effusive about the whole experience.
Living in Ohio , I have not seen or heard people so openly positive about a Conservative candidate in a very long time.
All over the place, at the doctor, at the gas station, at the grocery, etc. ...everywhere I go I am doing my own little pol and I do NOT hear anyone being openly Liberal this time around.
Absolutely NO ONE (including loudmouth “O” supporters from the previous national election) is publicly touting “O” this time.
It's almost as if they are ashamed! They are all mum about it. They are not supporting him OR defending him... which is interesting.
They KNOW he was a mistake and they bear the blame.
If the damage has not been so ghastly over the last four years, I could almost gloat over their embarrassment. However, since I am absolutely GA GA about this country, I am waiting for these wayward Americans to recover from their spell of hysteria which has hurt us all so much.
Looking at “O” and what his administration has done to us (Democrats and Republicans) is like watching a cancer disfigure the face of a very beautiful friend. Sad and painful!!
Lock and Load. Vote early, vote often, it’s the democrat way.

The problem is, 0bama’s core constituency will see this as an excuse to resort to violence over a “stolen” election.
The Cleveland Leader - Cleveland’s finest online only Communist news source.
This poll is way off.
Even the Obama campaign doesn’t really believe THAT is true.
A Democratic President should always do better than the party’s Senate candidate.
And I don’t think the President is less popular than Sherrod Brown.
The math is badly screwed up here.
I don’t know whether Panera is a local restaurant but it’s sort of the Starbucks of bakeries/salads/healthy sandwiches. We went to the one in Lawrence Kansas yesterday, Lawrence is the most liberal town in the state. Sort of like Austin Texas. We couldn’t find a single Obama bumper sticker in the parking lot. We started looking around town for Obama bumper stickers and yard signs. No many yard signs period but as many this year for Romney as for Obama and same for bumper stickers.
Exactly. Early voting is going to be the biggest source of fraud and shenanigans. When Obama hit the little Iowa town of Mt. Vernon after the 2nd debate, he spoke at Cornell College. It JUST SO HAPPENED that Cornell was scheduled to be an early polling location that day. Of course, when I read the reports of his speech it was clear he suggested over and over again to the crowd that they should go right over to it and vote that day. There were lines blocks long to vote both before he spoke and after. I would bet $100 the 300 ft rule was violated for campaigning near polling places. If not, it was VERY close.
PPP likely screened too many Obama voters. It says nothing about O is really doing in OH.
And the result is not believable - in no poll has O cracked 50. It would be a miracle if that happened in OH.
The problem is in the real world a D+8 turnout is simply impossible. PPP has sold the MSM a snow job.
But they masturbate to this over at DU. Even fake good news is better than the steady drumbeat of bad news they’ve getting over there.
It begs the question as to the motives behind such a skewing.
It has to be that, as most people recognize, without Ohio, 0bama has lost even before Nov 6 rolls around. The media minions are not willing to let the last “firewall” go, as the cumulative effect will make things even worse in a snowball effect.
thanks - in a state with Rep. govenor, state house and majority of congress, they give 8 points to Dems....rigghhht.
The Obama campaign is resembling Bernie in the classic movie.
How do you prop up a dead guy?
With smoke and mirrors. And this poll is built on smoke and mirrors!
NO! Businessmen do not sell their customers what they don't want. This is the result that the MSM paid for. Just like the Battleground Poll is being misreported because of the stupid thing they did to publish the raw results first to show a 1 point lead for Obama, then the got to the real results that showed Romney +5 with likely voters and then went on to show very likely voters. I have seen Romney at 53 and 52 but Obama was solid 45. They had to give each side something to crow about to attain their creds with each side since Goas is a Republican and Lake is a Democrat.
Here in Ohio, I know where to go if I want to see Wall-to-Wall O campaign signs.
Even IF all of those people registered and voted, they cannot re elect “O” on the strength of their own numbers, alone.
Just figure that if that element makes up no more than 14% of the general population, every single one of them voting can’t re elect O.
Without massive voter fraud, and way MORE white Liberal voter turnout, O is toast! Matter of fact, I am certain that voter fraud is how he got elected the first time.
LIKELY voters, they are polling, EIGHT DAYS FROM THE ELECTION.
WITH AN 8 POINT DEM OVERSAMPLE!
You know what? Go ahead, breathe easier. In fact, don't even vote. Obama's got it in the bag!!! LOL
This one over-sampled democrats, and under-sampled independents in Ohio. The I’s are heavily leaning Romney. This will be a lot closer than the PPP is suggesting.
American Blacks have been thrown under the bus by Obama. They are, with their very own votes putting thmselves adrift at sea for many years to come. Not-too-bright!!! You can lead a horse to water, but....you cannot make him drink!!!
This creature is happy:
What are the bragging rights? Even in the Democratic 2008 “wave” year - D advantage was +2 and O carried OH by five points.
No one seriously thinks either party will get +8. It doesn’t happen in the real world.
If they want to fool themselves into thinking Obama has OH in the bag, then their base will stay home thinking its over.
Nothing like complacency for them - they want to gin up Democratic turnout but it may just backfire.
What’s “motel” backwards? Let ‘om!
“Many PPP election polls were commissioned by the liberal web-site DailyKos, although the company states that most of its revenue comes from other sources.”
Anyone thinking Obama is in Ohio le alone up 4 is a fool.
Lemme guess... D+9
And of course, if the deck is stacked against them, (as it has been with the stunted and biased educational program we have) they don’t have the intellectual frame of reference or cognitive tools necessary to think their way out of the hole that has been dug for them.
I don’t disagree with you at all, the point is they are desperate to make any kind of gains they can and will go down just like Baghdad Bob did because they know if they lose, it is curtains for what we know as the MSM. They are fully exposed and all the truth of their complicity in the bogus polls and Benghazi cover ups will hasten the day that Glenn Beck buys 30 Rock from a bankrupt NBC.
Missed it by that much
Some of us are way past being tired of assorted "superiors" telling us that if the horse won't drink, then we need to shove his muzzle into the water and apply suction to the other end of his gastrointestinal tract... in perpetuity, no less.
Here's your crack.....< sarc >
.....now we can move on....
My dear friends - the onset of victory is becoming more obvious. Republicans keep ridiculing the truthful polls we put out. Our beloved President is well ahead. Don't believe those who say he can't win November 6th. He will be the next American Harry Truman. You just wait and see!"
Its internals were:
About the Ohio Newspaper Poll
The telephone poll which used both land lines and cell phones of 1,015 likely voters across Ohio from Oct. 18 through Oct. 23, has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. Other sources of error are possible, such as non-response bias. The response rate was 19.47 percent.
The party breakdown of the randomly selected respondents: 47 percent Democrats, 44 percent Republicans, 10 percent independents. The data were weighted to correct for potential sampling bias on gender and region of residence for respondents.
The poll was financed solely by the Ohio Newspaper Organization.
This poll is part of a continuing collaboration among Ohio's eight largest newspapers: The Dayton Daily News, (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, Cincinnati Enquirer, Columbus Dispatch, Akron Beacon Journal, The (Toledo) Blade, Canton Repository and The (Youngstown) Vindicator. The poll was conducted by the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Cincinnati.
So, even with a +3 advantage for democrats and saying only 10% are independents, this poll with only a 3.1% MOE found the race tied.
That tracks with Rasmussen's Ohio poll.
I'm by and large sticking with Rasmussen and not being turned aside by any of the others.
Pee Pee Pee is the same outfit that engineered an R+9 - sampled poll that showed Todd Akin leading by 1 to entice him to stay in the race.
This is a dem outfit. Not a scintilla of credibility.
Yeah, the die-hard libs are already whining, voter suppression by the eeeeeeeeeeeevil Republicans, Tagg Romney owning voting machines in Ohio and much, much more. Laughable. Numerous ones were posting on another non-political, suppose to be anyway, board just yesterday about such non-sense. Now who are the conspiracy theorists today? hahaha And don’t get me started on their voter id whining, and much more.
Appearing on NBC's Meet the Press, Kasich cited internal campaign polling that shows Romney with a lead in The Buckeye State.
I hope the Dims believe it so they do not need to waste time voting.
..boy are they going to be surprised--poll is complete nonsense...
